León Cathedral

Next major stop on the El Camino Santiago Pilgrimage Route. This was a day full of photographer's frustration. The sky was overcast and so the stained glass windows inside were dark and difficult to photograph. Even with all that, it was hard not to be impressed by the soaring vaulted ceilings and the stained glass windows that were both devotional and humorous, too. One could see why this cathedral is also known as The House of Light.

Condemned souls being eaten by demons. Love the boiling pots!




La Virgen Blanca


The choir was gated so I couldn't enter to photograph the details as I was in able to do in Burgos. Plus it was so dark that I had to set the ISO at pretty high setting.
